license plate frame

I have a 1949 Mercury Convertible. I just found and purchased original 49 Texas plates. They measure 6.5 by 10.5 inches. I have been searching for a nice chrome frame for them but can not find anything but the standard 6 by 12. Any advice?

Have someone locally with a 4x4 torch mate cut one for you. Thing can be as custom as you want.

If you want it dipped search around for a zinc place or a coating place to have that done or simply prime and paint it your body color.

Or simply have it cut from stainless and polish it up. If they know what they are doing stainless can be cut on a torch mate and look clean.

sorry I didn't look closely at the dimensions, I thought you were looking for the 6 1/4x 14 plates
